This symposium volume collects papers presented by nine scholars from six countries of the European Union and the Republic of China on Taiwan at an international conference concerning the situation and the role of the ROC in international politics. The papers offer an overview of the history and current situation of the ROC's foreign policy, its relations with Communist China, the USA, and the European Union. They also discuss the security problems of the island, Taiwan's position in international organizations and its relations with the United Nations. Observers of international politics will find here up-to-date information as well as valuable systematic analysis.
